BoreShield adds gel strength & filtration control in combination with ProDrill. From fine sands to small cobble, adding BoreShield to ProDrill will provide sufficient suspension and fluid loss properties to bore in the conditions.
Adds gel strength & filtration control in combination with ProDrill
- Gel Strength Builder- Produces gel strength for the suspension of high density and/or large grain materials when used in combination with ProDrill. From fine sands to small cobble, adding BoreShield to ProDrill will provide sufficient suspension and fluid loss properties to bore in the conditions.
- Filtration Control – As shown in Figure 1, BoreShield will reduce the rate of fluid leak off into the surrounding bore. This filtration control will help stabilize the bore leading to reduced pressures on pull back.
- Quickly Disperses – BoreShield quickly disperses into the drilling fluid with minimal shear and generally hydrates within five minutes.
- Cuttings Transport – When BoreShield is run with ProDrill, the increased low-end rheology (gel strength and yield point) allows sand and high density particles to be suspended in the drilling fluid, leading to more efficient cuttings removal from the bore hole.
Does BoreShield work in materials other than sand?
Yes, BoreShield can help stabilize any loose soil conditions and should be used in all high density, high permeability bores.
Can I run BoreShield with any of the other ProAction products?
BoreShield should always be run in conjunction with ProDrill, and is compatible with all other ProAction products.
Will BoreShield freeze?
Like most suspensions, BoreShield will get thicker as it gets colder. If it is too thick to be poured from the bag, simply massage the bag until the product can be squeezed out.
